Hello friends, how’s your Sunday going? Well, mine is going great. i started to try to develop the background layer today. Almost done with the underpainting. Not quiet sure what i’m doing, but it’s starting to come around, i think. i might need to let the paint sit for a day. i hope you all aren’t getting sick of the post on the process. If you are, just let me know. :)
SO a few weeks ago i saw a movie by my favorite director Krzysztof Kieślowski, it was Called ” A short Film About Love” and i have to say, it’s one of the most brilliant and interesting movies i’ve seen in i can’t remember how long. It’s definitely unlike any Love story you have every seen… haha Though it was really different, for some reason, i could really relate to it. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing? haha Not sure why i’m posting about it. But i was sitting and drawing and listening to music today, and a sort of cheesy sappy love song came on, and it made me start thinking about how there are stereo typical imagery when the word “Love” is mentioned generally. For example, i think of a big heart floating in the air, haha but when each of us thinks of love in terms that apply to us, we picture a whole other set of images, and these aren’t generic at all, they’re specific to us and our dreams and experiences… i don’t know, i was thinking about that yesterday and cracking up because when i thought about it, the most random sequence of images popped in my head. So i was thinking as a little homework assignment to you all, since I’m definitely a person that likes telling stories through images, i thought it would be interesting to have yawl post two images that remind you of love. Not generic love, but your personal version of it… i don’t know, you don’t have to if you don’t want to.. wow this is a quiet the rambling post… i should probably go to bed now. hahaha oh p.s. the picture is a 5ft painting i did 3-4 years ago.
